10 Unfortunatunately, the Geforce 6200 series is too old for vdpau
11 support. It starts with the Geforce 8400 series. As I mentioned in
12 another post, -march=native does not enable mmx, sse, sse2, sse3, and
13 ssse3 options for gcc. I'll explicitly put them in CFLAGS, and rebuild
14 system+world+kernel, and see if it helps.
